Default What a difference! (pics yay!)

I posted a few of these in the newbie page, but I wanted to share with my fellow 2s!
1st pic, maybe age 4ish, I had crazy fast growning, long, straight, shiny hair. I got my head petted a lot as a child.

2nd. How I wore my hair pretty much from age 14 till now. Long and blow dried/straightened. Also dyed the bejesus out of it since I started going gray at 15.

3rd. Once I realized it wasn't actually straight anymore, I attempted to figure out how to wear it properly wavy with pretty sad and limp results. This is the result of trying to do CG but with conditioners and products that had silicones.

4th. My hair yesterday, after finally using non-silicone co-wash and leave-in, la looks gel, and catwalk curl amplifier.

I was pretty astonished. Every time i've ever tried to wear it "wavy" It had a few sad little S curves, but was very flat against my head and looked dull and stringy. Simply switching to the right products (and also discovering plopping) has made them springy and soft and I actually have a few spirals going on, which i've never had! I had people coming up to me asking me if I got a perm and friends saying "Wow i've known you 15 years and i've apparently NEVER seen your natural hair before!"

I've been experimenting a little with what i've got (waiting till my deva curl appointment on the 17th to invest in anything else) I got even more spirals foregoing gel and only using the curl amplifier, but it was mega frizzy. also rainy and gross that day though too.
